Have a little mini box sporting an a8-7600. Trying Kubuntu 16.04.3 because it's the last version supported by 17.40. Do a full install, then run apt-get update and upgrade... a long process... then install 17.40. The entire build shows no errors, I do a sudo reboot, boots to a black screen. All I can do is uninstall. It's a little mini-itx board, but has 8gbs 2100mhz ddr3, a wd blue 750gb hd, and runs win7 with the radeon driver just fine. Am I missing something?

Roll back to Gallium, or whatever was there by default.
Just a few days ago I had to deal with similar issues + some QT apps w/ acceleration, after an AMD driver update on an older Llano machine.
The webdev girl got so pissed at canonical & amd, that she just said "gimmethef$%^nwindowz!".
